Powell, Jonathan & Olya

Serving in Ukraine | Acct # 16156


Olya was born in Odessa, Ukraine, under the Soviet Union and was raised in a home that did not know God. Olya came to faith in Odessa through the work of MTW missionaries in 1997, and served actively in her church there until she moved to L’viv in 2008 to serve on the new church-planting team.

Jon grew up in Virginia. As his faith grew during college, he developed a vision and passion to mentor and disciple university students, prompting his desire to serve in L’viv starting in 2009.

Jon and Olya met the first day Jon arrived, and after two years of working together as teammates, they were married. Together, they have a passion for seeing young people in L’viv come to know and love Jesus. Jon has been working with university students over the last four years, and now serves as director of the university ministry in L’viv. This role gives him ample opportunities to make relationships, teach, lead Bible studies, disciple, and train young adult leaders. Olya also plays a key role as she helps disciple young women. Additionally, Olya serves as a key component of the church’s children’s ministry, teaching Sunday school and helping lead VBS.
